The church was having a fall festival and in the spirit of bringing health care to the people, CHI St. Vincent performed screening mammograms, blood sugar tests and blood pressure screenings.
We also distributed Spanish language health education materials on smoking, alcohol use, diabetes and mental health. The Arkansas Flavor magazine with bilingual healthy recipes was well received (thanks to the Arkansas Times for publishing this free guidebook).
Our mammography team performed 10 mammograms and about 100 other screening tests were conducted. Several cases of hypertension were noted and referrals made to our local clinic.
